RCN Cablemodem and name resolution

Hi All -

   I've noticed over the past week that RCN's nameservers are no
longer providing *forward* DNS mapping for the hostname associated
with my cable modem.  Backwards resolution works fine.  The main beef
with this is that some MTA's at sites I want to communicate with will
not accept mail from nodes that cannot be resolved via DNS.

  I've had a ticketfor this issue filed with their customer service
since Wednesday with nothing shaking so far.

  Any other RCN cablemodem users experiencing this?

Thanks in Advance,
ccb (
